    They may change the way you work the bag… In a good way!, July 15, 2016

    I’ve recently added a heavy bag routine to my workout and I was using the Everlast gloves that were included with my bag. Let me say this, there’s a reason those gloves come “free” with the bag, it’s because they absolutely suck. I didn’t realize this until I picked up a pair of these beauties. I’ll be honest, I picked these up because they were cheaper than a comparable pair of Everlast and WAY cheaper than the Title brand that my friends recommended, no disrespect to the pricier gloves, but I just didn’t need them for 2-3 bag sessions a week… The Venum gloves have ample wrist support and fantastic shock absorption. I picked up my 14-ounce pair for around $48 bucks and I’ll be honest I was pretty leery given how my hand felt after a 45 minute session with the bag in my old gloves from an Everlast brand that I “knew”, these gloves have honestly changed how I work the bag. I can now hit the bag harder without fear of my wrist support not being there.

    The 14-ounce gloves fit me like a… well… glove. I’m 5’10” and about 165 lbs and I’d say my hands are on the larger side of “medium”… or the smaller side of “large” figures if you’re a half empty or half full kind of person I guess.

    Just a few maintenance tips that I’ve picked up over the past few months of use:
    1. When you finish spray down the inside with a bit of Lysol (or knock-off) disinfectant
    2. Next stuff in a bit of newspaper to allow airflow to move through the gloves
    3. Don’t stuff them into a nasty gym bag, let them air out in your garage or basement
    4. If you really want them to smell fresh you can go out and pick up a cheap bag of hamster cedar bedding, stuff two clean gym socks with the bedding, tie them off and then insert like the newspaper up there in step 2. That’s a poor man’s/woman’s glove deodorizer right there (and what I use…)

    Cheers!

    I love these gloves. They look sharp, appear well made and fit damn nice. What was important to me was the way my fist was made inside the gloves. I’ve used other gloves that didn’t form a complete fist, making me think I was going to break my hand. But I love the way these feel. I’d buy again if I needed to.

    Edit: It’s been over a year and I just realized why the velcro strap keeps coming undone…the velcro doesn’t work anymore. The glove itself is holding up beautifully, but the velcro itself just doesn’t work anymore. There’s no sign of dirt, funk, cotton strands or other physical impediments getting in the way, it just simply stopped working, forcing me to use a rubber band to keep it closed. I’ll have to have some extra velcro sewn on just to keep using them.

    Started MMA 2 months ago. The gloves took about three weeks to completely break in, with three lessons a week plus hard bag hitting. Once they have broken in they were so comfortable. I try to clean it after every day I train, it hasn’t smelled thus far. The breathability also helps as drying off the gloves. Gloves came in perfect conditions in original packaging. Great item!
